The Rome Express


Published October 3, 2012


LibriVox recording of The Rome Express, by Arthur Griffiths.

The passengers in the sleeping car of the Rome Express were just woken and informed that they will reach Paris soon, and a general bustle fills the train. Only one passenger cannot be awoken by the porter, no matter how loudly he knocks on the compartment door. At last, when the door is forced open, the occupant of the compartment is found dead - stabbed to the heart! The murderer must be found among the passengers... (Summary by Carolin)

Subject: Mostly good
A murdered man is found on a train, and the chief suspect is a lady of status. The French police have to do a bit of work to figure out whodunnit in this light mystery.

I found that the storyline focused more on the human aspects of the characters rather than the mystery. It was predictable as well, but it was still a good listen.

The readers were mostly good, with a few rough chapters at the start. Overall a good story.
